ZX Spectrum <-> PC Communication

Isn't it amazing how pretty much anything is more interesting than work you have to do?

This evening, I made up an RS-232 cable to connect my Spectrum to my PC, using this pinout:
Spectrum 9D plug pinPC 9D socket pin

I fired up HyperTerminal under Windows XP on my desktop, with settings of 19200 baud, 8-N-1, and then ran the following program on my Spectrum:
10 FORMAT "t";19200
20 OPEN #5;"t"
30 PRINT #5;"Mark is ace"
50 CLOSE #5

Here is the result (click on the picture to get a larger image):

Now I really must do some work for the morning, before I get distracted with how to send programs either way...
